Come Show Off Your Skills in the Park at our 15th Annual Ryan Rail Jam!

Ryan Lichtenberg was a former employee and frequent park competitor, as well as a friend to many people here at the mountain. He passed away during the Fall of 2004 in Colorado due to a head injury sustained while snowboarding. His family wishes to continue to get the word out about safety and helmet usage. The Ryan Rail Jam honors the memory of Ryan while promoting helmet safety awareness. Join us for our first terrain park event of the season—open to skiiers and boarders!
